Neve Tzedek

Exploring Israel

When visiting Tel Aviv, you must take the time to explore one of its oldest districts; Neve Tzedek. Neve Tzedek was actually established 20 years before Tel Aviv; in 1887. The neighborhood was built as a way out for the Jewish families who no longer wanted to live in the overcrowded Jaffa; making it the first Jewish neighborhood outside of the old port city.

In the early 1900s, Neve Tzedek became a haven for aspiring writers and artists such as Nobel prize laureate Shmuel Yosef Agnon and artist Nahum Gutman. Sadly, Neve Tzedek fell into disrepair over time as affluent families moved away; leaving Neve Tzedek as a slum. It almost came to the point where the whole neighborhood was going to be demolished. Luckily, the preservation of some of the old buildings kept that from happening, and a beautiful restoration began. Now, Neve Tzedek is back to its former glory and is a must-see stop while exploring Tel Aviv. 

Neve Tzedek Neighborhood: A Perfect Place to Spend A Couple of Hours 

Neve Tzedek is a picturesque neighborhood perfect for an afternoon stroll down Rokach Street, popping into cafes for a cup of tea, or hitting one of the locally run restaurants. The quirky architectural style and narrow streets make the ideal locale to take stunning photos.

You will find little art galleries, boutiques, wine bars, and cute cafes around every corner. Of course, while touring the neighborhood, you must visit the Nachum Gutman Museum of Art as well as try to see a show at the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theater. No matter where you wander through this neighborhood, you will fall in love with its artistic touch and its kind citizens.
